NO! NO! NO! NO! ... Oh, and NO!!!

February 9 2012, 10:50 PM 

OK, I will NOT be back to see it next Wednesday! Needless to say, I did not really care for it, and the way it was done! Just like "How Bruce Lee Changed The World" had too many people that had no connection whatsoever to Bruce Lee, this one did too! Some parts of it were good (maybe 10% of it), but for the most part ... NO! There is a TON of rare footage that they could have used but they did not use any of it! There were people in it that had absolutely NO BUSINESS whatsoever being there, and the people who should have been in it were nowhere to be found, with the exception of Dan Inosanto, David Tadman, Linda Lee and Shannon Lee! They needed to leave ALL of the MMA people out of it, as well as the actors who had NO CLUE what they were talking about! They needed to leave all of the "Bruce Lee was the father of mixed martial arts" garbage out of it! Oh well, to say anymore would just be wasting my time typing! None of my guys who went really cared for it either, and if not for them, the theater would have been nearly empty! Very unfortunate for what could have been something really awesome! sad.gif

Too bad...

February 10 2012, 8:25 AM 

That's a disappointment! I had my suspicions when I saw the trailer and they were talking to UFC and music/movie people that had no connection to JKD or MA in general, but still had hopes for a decent showcase for Bruce Lee. Ah well, you can't expect too much from the Hollywood machine, I guess. We were planning to catch it when it made it's way up to Canada (probably in Toronto), but I don't think it sounds worth the hour drive to get there and another to get home! I'll wait for DVD and even then only give it 10-20 minutes before irritation makes me find something else...

It makes me wonder, though, if the BL Foundation (specifically those interviewed: Linda, Shannon, Dan Inosanto) approve of all this MMA b.s. connection people are trying to "fit" Bruce Lee's teachings into. That's just wrong on soooo many levels... it's like they just want to ride the current trend without thought of the lasting impact on the legacy!

Disappointing

February 10 2012, 7:02 PM 

Yes, it was very disappointing, interviewing people who had no business being interviewed, dancers, rappers and martial arts wannabes.

Disapointing. Whats even sadder though is that I will still probably see it when it comes out here in March. I've supported worse. I think I have 3 copies of Bruce Lee: The Man, The Myth.

Steve, there is NOTHING wrong with that! I LOVE "Bruce Lee: The Man & The Myth"! It is FAR BETTER than "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story"! And I would be more than happy to go see it on the big screen again! happy.gif

Hard to Say ...

February 12 2012, 12:41 PM 

As far as documentaries, I would have to say that I liked the first one that A&E did. It was only shown once, as it was unauthorized and they got in a bit of trouble over showing it! happy.gif "A Warrior's Journey" by John Little was also very good! "Death By Misadventure" was an OK documentary as well! The closest thing to a biographical movie about Bruce Lee is "Bruce Lee: The Man & The Myth", as far as I'm concerned! I thought it was much better than "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story".

The Man, The Myth

February 12 2012, 12:55 PM 

Oh, I'm not knocking The Man, The Myth. It's just that there are a few cheesey but very quotable parts. Like if one of us at the kwoon lands a clean punch, you could throw in a "So, you fear my feet. (Holds up fist) Now you know these are just as deadly!". Also, Greg does a great impression of the "Who could do this to a Thai boxer?!" guy.

That is the SECOND documentary that A&E released! The AUTHORIZED one! It was OK, but their "mistake" was by far the best! Too bad most never got to see that one!

http://www.bruceleecollection.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/bruce%20and%20brandon%20lee%20videos

Sifu, you probably have most if not all of these DVD's, what can you tell us about them?

When you have the time.

NO!

February 13 2012, 9:55 PM 

That is the SECOND ONE! The first one never made it even long enough to be shown again, much less put on DVD! They used footage that they were not authorized to use!

In your guys opinion, who do you think should have been in the documentary? I don't see why yo guys have such a problem with people from different backgrounds sharing their appreciation for Bruce Lee. And why is their so much hate towards MMA and the UFC?

Simple!

February 16 2012, 11:38 PM 

It is "filler" in a BRUCE LEE documentary! These people have/had NOTHING to do with Bruce Lee or Jeet Kune Do! They should have interviewed people who trained with him and worked with him. If they don't hurry up and do that, there won't be many original students left! They have enough material available to make an awesome documentary, yet they keep coming out with this type of thing where there is no really rare footage, and nothing at all that hasn't been used in other Bruce Lee documentaries! Another thing that you have to consider is that most people on this forum are HARDCORE Original Jeet Kune Do practitioners, and do not care for the use of martial art as sport or competition, but instead REAL WORLD self defense! No offense intended towards anyone, that's just the way it is!

It sounds like all they did is string the "Bruce Lee Lives" shows together and put it on the big screen. I saw only 2 people who even knew what J.K.D. really was, the rest were people who never knew Bruce, and a lot of crap about J.K.D. being MMA. Now we don't have a problem with other styles but with people living with the idea that Jun Fan Gungfu is what Bruce Lee used to teach, and J.K.D. is MMA. It is not.
